Bloomington and Minnetonka will be among five Minnesota cities using ranked-choice voting when they implement it for the first time in the November election.
”Minneapolis and St. Paul have used the system for years
The west metro cities join Minneapolis, St. Paul and St. Louis Park, which have already implemented the system that allows voters to rank multiple candidates instead of choosing just one.
Minneapolis and St. Paul have used the system for years, while St. Louis Park adopted ranked-choice voting in 2018.
St. Paul and Bloomington allow voters to rank up to six candidates for each office, while Minneapolis, Minnetonka and St. Louis Park allow voters to rank up to three choices.
The five cities represent 16% of votes in the state, according to the organization FairVote Minnesota.
